Another addition to the class of 2021.

It was a bad day for Tennessee on Saturday afternoon on the basketball court, but the football program received some good news shortly after. Darrell Jackson, a 2021 edge rusher, committed to Tennessee during his visit on campus.

“I am proud to announce that I have committed to Tennessee,” Jackson tweeted on Saturday.

Jackson has yet to be rated in the 247Sports database. The 6-3, 235 pound prospect is out of Havana, Florida. He was offered by Tennessee during his visit to a Junior Day event on campus on Saturday, and didn’t waste any time committing.

Jackson only held other offers from Maryland and Bethune-Cookman. It should be interesting to see how interest picks up with him after his commitment. Jackson said that he plans on visiting other schools throughout the year.

He’s the second defensive line prospect to commit to Tennessee in as many weeks, following the decision of Isaac Washington last week. Jackson’s commitment is the sixth for the Volunteers so far in the class of 2021.

Tennessee will wrap up the class of 2020 on Wednesday this week with the traditional signing day date.
